    What I liked about the scene with Ben is he KNEW something was up- he even asks at the end if they are still on for their date later, bc to him it felt like she was possibly breaking up. Both Jay and Sara’s acting in this scene was great. And yes I LOVED the scene in the laundry room!!! I just love seeing these two sisters together and remembering them when they were younger, seeing how much has changed and how much has stayed the same. I love how close they are now, and getting closer all the time.

    I didn’t even realize it was a fake accent so I guess it sounded pretty good to me.

    The Conners Past and Present

    He thought he might be able to retire and help pay for her college, and help pay for Mark’s art course. It was actually a really sweet scene IMO. Also I think any added financial burden of having Darlene and her kids living with him is erased by the joy they bring him. Like in the last episode, he tells Darlene to go live her life but once she leaves the room we see he is upset about it. Since he didnt get the big payout, she probably will do the community college route first, barring any other bad life choices- let’s see if Harris can make it through high school and college without getting married or pregnant lol.

    The Conners Past and Present

    She didn’t expect him to pay for it. She politely (for Harris lol) hedged the topic and he went with it. It’s ok for parents and grandparents to buy things for their kids if they are able to and want to. My dad paid for my college and I paid for my grad school.

    She did say she gets good grades (and scored high on the ACT) l don’t know how good they are but Darlene didn’t disagree with her. Darlene also said she half-asses things so maybe she is just that smart that she can only half pay attention to things and still do well. The article in the Chicago Sun-Times is very impressive for a high school student.

    2 questions..... Did Jackie and Bev and Peter all live in that apartment together? Are Darlene and David still married? I know she mentioned getting a divorce but not sure if they ever did anything about it.

    That’s a real life scenario, not a fictional scenario ;).

    Haha I love that part! And the “white heritage” comment. I really hope he is coming back somehow, he and Becky have so much potential- both romantic and comedic.

    The Conners Past and Present

    Well to be fair, this is a sitcom and not a documentary. I do agree they could be doing their research some more. But the Conners, even during Roseanne, were never poverty levels. Just working class.

    He seemed upset to me- he was going to support her but didn’t want her to go. Darlene and David can have a better relationship now, if they choose to. It’s not out of their control. People keep ripping on David but Darlene wasn’t exactly the nicest most supportive partner. Now? She seems like she can be exactly that. Let’s see if David steps up.

    Yep Jackie even said he might get deported or he might be around for another 20 years.

    Some of my favorite comedic moments: I think the tattoo thing was an inside joke bc I remember reading Galecki and his real life girlfriend got tattoos several months back. I love “Show the kids your tattoo so they know it’s not cool anymore”. The Bev in the body bag joke was the funniest thing Peter has said all season, both the initial comment and follow up discussion. ”Your dad- you know him right? Dan?” Also I loved every moment with Harris in this episode. She has been finally hitting her stride lately.

    Just rewatched. Still love it. I’m surprised what they were able to pack in 22 minutes. I’m not seeing all the problems everyone else is seeing- Yes things are looking back now but as Darlene said, life is ever changing. The family is all together at the end and together there is hope. Even sweet Emilio is determined to find his way back somehow. I can understand being upset with David but the biggest complaint I have seen against him is that he is wishy-washy and has no backbone. Here? He showed backbone. And he resonated with Darlene. Like someone else said, she isn’t staying bc of her dad. She is staying because she wants to see how this thing with David will play out. And Ben could sense something is amiss. I cannot wait to see how this all plays out next season. And Jackie??? She came to an epiphany herself. I need to see what that looks like. How she is going to look inside herself for happiness. This is definitely one of the best episodes of the season IMO. I actually don’t think it was too vague- watch her facial expressions and what she actually says to Ben. She is using her dad as an excuse but the entire convo is about David.
